Medallion Rib stitch is a fun knitting pattern that creates vertical and horizontal ribbed effects. It is an all-over cable knitting pattern featuring horizontal welts separated by cabled columns.
Medallion Rib Stitch Pattern can replace the regular ribbing pattern in any project, or you can make knitted fabrics like pullovers or cardigans using the pattern. It’s most suited for larger projects as the horizontal and vertical design elements are quite prominent.
